MOOG Steering & Suspension

Problem Solving Steering & Suspension Parts

In 1919, brothers H.P. and S.A. Moog bought the St. Louis branch of the Jenkins-Vulcan Spring Company and eventually turned it into the global chassis parts leader, currently known as MOOG. It earned the reputation of “The Problem Solver” back in 1937 when its first front-end replacement part was recognized by mechanics as outperforming the factory original. Since that time, MOOG has been consistently developing "problem solving solutions."

Featured Products

At the beginning, the company made automotive leaf springs mostly for Ford Model T cars and trucks. In the 1920s, its product line was expanded with unique designs for original equipment springs and the business name was changed to St. Louis Spring Company. 14 years later, the manufacturer successfully entered the piston ring industry with the purchase of St. Louis Motor Products Company.


In 1943, all Moog-owned corporations including St. Louis Spring Co., Moog Coil Action Parts Co., and Moog Piston Ring Co. were consolidated as divisions of MOOG Industries, Inc. A decade later, the company became involved in NASCAR for the first time. Since that time, MOOG has been providing free parts to teams in exchange for their sporting the MOOG logo. Today MOOG supplies a complete package of service solutions including suspension parts, hub assemblies and bearings, and universal joints.

The steering line of the company has earned the trust of technicians and NASCAR crew chiefs and now includes alignment parts, tie rod ends, idler and pitman arms, center/drag links, and steering stabilizers. The MOOG Hub Assemblies line includes coverage for virtually all applications putting the company's problem-solving philosophy to work for the broadest range of vehicles while the universal joints line brings a whole variety of U-joint parts that are machined to meet or exceed original equipment standards.

2000 Chevy Tahoe

A quality American built part at a great price with very fast shipping. Spent about 4 hours installing on a 2000 Chevy Tahoe as I needed to pull the steering gear box out to remove the old pitman arm. Due to the work involved to install this, I would recommend using a top quality part as I would not want to do it again any time soon. A very noticeable improvement in my steering and handling.

Used Moog for replacement of GM original parts on vehicle. Exact fit. Easy install. Solid steering after replacing inner and outer tie rods. Complete part, only needed a socket wrench and a tie rod puller. Well made. Thanks CARiD!

I had play in my front end. To make sure that I eliminated any steering linkage, I purchased Moog problem solver outer tie rod ends, inner tie rod ends, Idler arm bracket, idler arm and pitman arm. I purchased everything from CARiD at about half the cost of the chain auto parts stores and about the same price as the part store "economy" parts. I read that the Moog problem solver parts were better and I certainly agree. With the original part, if the thin rubber boot that holds the grease fails (or if a careless lube guy blow out the boot by over-lubing) the joint loses lubrication and is exposed to dirt and other contaminates. When this happens, the joint WILL fail. However, Moog redesigned each part, eliminating the rubber boot of the original. With the Moog design, the grease is held inside the metal casing of the joint. There is no rubber boot to fail. In its design, Moog eliminated the weakest link in each suspension part, the rubber boot, and created a part that could actually live up to a life-time guarantee. Now, some people might not need this extra protection because they trade cars every few years. But if you are reading this, chances are that you are like me; trying to squeeze every mile out of your current vehicle. If so, get Moog's problem solvers, do the job once and don't worry about it again.

Drop in replacement for the OEM ball joint. These have the grease fitting. If you grease them at the same time you do the oil changes you should get good mileage out of them. (if this is the top ball joint the U-Joint will hit the fitting, however, you can take the plug out and still grease them and reinstall the plug) Moog was the other ball joint used. I don't remember which was the top and the bottom, but they are obvious once you get them.

I'm all about spending my money locally, but the markup is just to much on them. The part is actually the "MOOG" brand and not a knock off. I did have an issue with one of mine, it didn't come with the boot. Product shipped a replacement very quickly with no questions asked. Would purchase again.
